The first official trailer for the latest installment in the legendary “Chucky” series, Curse of Chucky, has made its way online! Check out the the mayhem, below:
If you don’t know the story by now, Chucky is a living, killer “Good Guy” doll possessed (via voodoo, of course) by the murderous spirit of serial killer Charles Lee Ray. He also really hates this kid named Andy, and his entire family or anyone who comes into contact with him. It’s a long story.
Here’s the official synopsis for the film, directly from Universal:
“He’s back! From the filmmakers that brought you Chucky comes the terrifying return of the pint-sized doll possessed by the spirit of a notorious serial killer. When a mysterious package arrives at the house of Nica (Fiona Dourif, “True Blood”), she doesn’t give it much thought. However, after her mother’s mysterious death, Nica begins to suspect that the talking, red-haired doll her visiting niece has been playing with may be the key to the ensuing bloodshed and chaos. The return of America’s favorite toy, voiced again by Brad Dourif, is unrated and full of more blood-splattered thrills and chills.”
If you haven’t seen the films, you’re missing out. Child’s Play is a landmark horror classic, and the immediate sequels, while not quite as influential on the genre, are still pretty good. The later sequels, starting with Bride of Chucky, are good too, but in a different way. While horror purists may not be on board with me, those movies are undeniably fun and help build a bigger “Chucky Universe”.
